Arthritis Pain

Do you suffer from Ingrown Toenails?

Ingrown toenails are very common, and often cause infection if not treated. It can cause sharp or aching pain depending on the infection level. They often occur when the nail starts to grow into the side of the toe. Antibiotics can be prescribed to help clear the infection, however the pain may still be present.

The safest way to guarantee that the nail spike is removed safely is by a Podiatrist.
